world’s worst coat closet: before and after

December 16, 2009

Well I suppose you can say I’ve reached a ‘nesting’ phase.  You can tell this because my house looks like a disaster but behind doors and cabinets things are looking organized.  Apparently my tactic is pull everything out we don’t want or need and leave it on the floor.  Everything else gets labeled and put into some sort of container.  Luckily we have a Christmas party at our house on Saturday so I have a deadline to get the floor space cleared out!

Here is our coat closet before:

Yeah, that’s an empty gun case.  Classy right?

After:

Yes, I store paper towels and TP in our coat closet.  A 1960’s ranch doesn’t come with built in storage that fits today’s lifestyle.  (I’m not sure what paper towels and TP have to do with any kind of lifestyle….but just go along with it okay?)  I improvised with a sweater hanger from Target that was like 7.99.  Just so you know, paper towels happen to be the exact depth of a sweater organizer.  Things like this make me happy.

Okay, I’m off to create more chaos!

    Just found your blog! And I have to say, this is kind of an inspirational picture–I just moved into a new place and the closets have kind of turned into where I shove everything I don’t want to deal with just yet. But it looks so much nicer when it’s organized like this!
